God Bacchus or Dionysus

Statue of Bacchus, a Roman god synonymous with the Greek god Dionysus. He was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy. He is a major, popular figure of Greek mythology and religion. His festivals were the driving force behind the development of Greek theatre.

This is a fine art print of a beautiful engraving of a statue at Versaille Palace in France made in 1689 by Simon Thomassin. It's from his work "Recuel des Statue, Groupes, Fontaines, Termes, Vases et Autres Mangifique Ornamens du Chateau et Parc de Versailles", which shows the magnificent statues, fountains and ornaments at the Palace of Versaille.
